Gitmo Hunger Strikers? HuffPost Readership Scoffs

The Huffington Post covered a story about US soldiers force-feeding Guantanamo hunger striking protesters. Naturally the picture for the article wasn't near as sympathetic as some others we have seen:

The top favorited comments were pretty much all along the lines of, "let 'em die."

Now this might be another case of the right-wing elements of the Huffington Post readership hijacking a thread again, but feel free to contrast this coverage with the Palestinian hunger strikers. I think it's fairly obvious that on the Huffington Post not all hunger strikers are created equal.
